Ok you must be using a a/v cable at your house? And the hdmi cable at your brother in laws? If this is the problem its not the xbox hdmi cable. It doesnt matter all hdmi cables work the same. Its your settings. You need to hold you power button down and it should come on and beep twice then release it and a settings menu should pop up if it doesnt hold the power button down until it comes on and shuts off then hold the power button down again until it beeps twice. Hope this helps.
First off, if you want to use the hdmi remove the supplied composite cable from the back of the ps3. You don't need both plugged in at the same time, and I'm not sure with the ps3 but some video devices will not enable both at once.
Have your tv selected for whatever hdmi input you have it plugged into. They should be labeled where you plug them in.
With the unit in standby, switch off and red light in front, hold the power button by the disc tray for 3-5 second. You will hear it beep, after the initial turn on beep, then you should see a display set up screen.
If you switch back to the composite, you will have to do this over again.
Try to reset the video signal: when you power on the ps3, gently press and hold on to it for a few seconds untill you hear a couple of quick bleeps. release your inger and you should now be able to reset you r ps3 to HDMI signal. Hope this works and makes sense. if that doesn't work then you and i are facing the same problem. Good luck
I have the PS3 and this TV and it works....Try this.
1. Turn ON TV
2. Connect HDMI from TV to PS3
3. Select the correct HDMI input on the TV for the PS3(important)
4.Turn OFF PS3 if it is ON.
5. hold [I/O] Power button on PS3
6. Wait about 5 second and you should get the "HDMI Detected" or some similar message.
7. Configure the HDMI output for the PS3
Also, If you set the PS3 to "auto" for hdmi, it may set the resolution to 1080i. You may want to deselect everthing but the 1080P.
I just bought my PS3 and noticed this exact problem, Go into your audiosettings click hdmi. then go to manual. Uncheck Dolby 5.1. save your settings. This fixed the static for me. Sony should fix thier 5.1 drivers
When you switch from one cable connection to another (Hdmi to AV etc) you need to reset the PS3 to its default settings. Basically what is happening is, your PS3 is set to HDMI, so when you plug in AV cables it doesn't know it. So you have to reset it. Hook your PS3 up to whatever cables (make sure system is fully off) then hold the front power button down for a few seconds.
Doing this will reset the display settings. You can then go into the XMB (main menu) and choose your connection. Although the PS3 should do this during the start up on its own.
Okay, I am now going through all the unsolved problems for which previously I had the same problems and now posting our solution. First, if you have no pic due to swiching of the cables (ie, cable av, hdmi) WHENEVER you switch your cable output, the ps3 also switches it's output. Make sure when there is no picture due to this problem to turn off the game console, then turn on, hold down the power button for approx. 5 SECs, there will be a BEEP. Let go of power button, the ps3 has then switched back to the output it is currently plugged in and will work. (ALSO sometimes you have to have ONLY the ps3 and tv hooked up) Hope this helped. I know how stressful this can be!
I am currently working on this problem with a PS3. Can you tell me what lead up the PS3 shutting down, did you remove a cable or anything prior to this? I see you were playing Call of duty 3. If I find the cause tonight, I may be able to fill you in on what the cause is.
Follow the guy aboves solution to reset your Ps3 to 480i. Turn the power to the system off from the switch on the back and then when you flip it back have the power button held down on the front of the system. This only resets the picture doesn't change anything else or erase any games, I had to do it and it works!!
